Marseille is a city that proudly boasts with its rich jazz tradition, a city that introduced jazz into the Conservatoire National de Marseille in 1959 and a city where one of the most significant jazz festivals in France is taking place for the 18th time this year: Marseille Jazz Festival of the Five Continents! From 19th – 29th July the visitors will have the unique opportunity to encounter various great artists and maybe discover some new jazz sounds for the first time! Brandford Marsalis Trio, Kurt Eling, Herbie Hankock, George Benson, Norah Jones, Ana Popovic… these are just some of the names waiting for you this summer!

The heart of the festival is still at the Palais Longchamp, Silvain Theater and Mucem and Friche la Belle Of May. However, since the organizers are always creating something new, this year the scenes of the Métropole, the Aix Marseille University and at the Opera of Marseille are open for festival’s concerts as well.

The goal of Marseille Jazz Festival is to make exceptional moments for the audience by bringing the artists of international reputation and organizing the series of concerts that will be played from June to September. Having in mind their internationally recognized reputation and numerous visitors, they are succeeding to accomplish it year after year.

Book a ticket this summer and be a part of the beautiful party under the starry sky!
